Particle Sciences is a leading drug product formulation Contract Research Organization. We integrate complete formulation, analytic, bioanalytic and clinical trial material manufacturing under one roof providing our clients with a cost effective and time efficient partner. Each group at Particle Sciences is led and staffed by experienced industry professionals.

Dexamethasone-Loaded Silicone

NEW! Dexamethasone-Loaded Silicone

All implantable systems trigger a foreign body response—an inflammatory cascade that results in fibrous encapsulation of any foreign object. Our dexamethasone-loaded silicone minimizes inflammation, accelerating your product development cycle and helping you commercialize faster. We offer both stock and custom options to accommodate any project.

Biopharmaceutical Development

Biopharmaceutical Formulation

Particle Sciences brings decades of experience to the formulation and delivery of Biopharmaceuticals. While we use traditional methods, our patent pending, non-covalent approaches are truly differentiated. Through the use of electrostatic and hydrophobic interactions we create formulations that meet your performance needs while minimizing the regulatory, product characterization and product release burden

Particle Characterization

Physical Characterization

Consistency and quality are critical to pharmaceutical product development. API solid state and the physical properties of the formulation will largely dictate stability, bioavailability and ultimately, performance. As API's move further away from small, readily soluble molecules, these issues have increasing importance. In addition to a full array of standard characterization technologies, Particle Sciences has one of the country's most complete physical characterization labs.
